An Erie man was arraigned this morning for his involvement in a shooting Monday evening.
30 year old Walter L. Merritte Jr. is accused of shooting a man in the shoulder during a fight in the 600 block of East 11th Street on Monday at about 5:45pm. A witness told police Merritte and the victim were arguing when the suspect pointed a handgun at the victim and fired.
Officers recovered two .22-caliber shell casings at the scene. Merritte fled and was later captured in the 700 block of East 8th Street. Merritte is now in Erie County Prison on $100,000 bond.
